The Joint Replacement Institute

Mission Regional Medical Center's Joint Replacement Institute has earned The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval™ for Total Hip Replacement and Total Knee Replacement by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission's national standards for health care quality and safety in disease-specific care.

The program is unique to the Rio Grande Valley. The Joint Replacement Institute strives to prepare patients for surgery in all aspects including physically and mentally by making sure patients are at their healthiest for these elective surgeries, educating patients beforehand for optimal outcomes after surgery and to promote a speedier recovery. Patients enlist in a pre-op education program that provides them with valuable information and an opportunity to complete a pre-op work-up required for the surgery all in one visit. 

Undoubtedly, there are a number of other good reasons why our physicians have earned national recognition for their orthopedic care in the Rio Grande Valley. The most important reason is that our physicians at Mission Regional Medical Center devote themselves to helping you return to a healthy and active lifestyle.
